Come Drink of the Living Waters

Do you know the major component on which all living matter survives? Water! The living cells of every plant, animal, and human are dependent upon that one essential element for their healthy existence.

David said, “There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High,” (Ps. 46:4 NKJV) and this “river of God is full of water.” (Ps. 65:9 NLKV)

As necessary as it is for our body to be nourished with water to stay healthy, it is even more necessary for our spirit and soul to be filled with the Living Waters of the Lord to stay spiritually healthy.

Near the end of the book of Revelation, John describes these waters as the “pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, coming forth out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.” (Rev. 22:1 NKJV) Living Waters from the throne, a continuous flow from God, the Fountain of Life.

When your soul is parched from the incessant trials of life, when you’re bone tired from your dusty, wilderness journey, and your bucket of life is empty, when you long to hear the words of comfort and feel the Lord’s presence, do you know where to go to refill your bucket, to quench your spiritually shriveled soul, to regain your strength?

Do you ask yourself as the woman at the well asked Jesus, “So how are you going to get this ‘living water’?” (John 4:11Msg)

All your springs of peace, comfort, joy, grace, and all else you need are in God. Therefore, drink of that Living Water, the “water springing up into everlasting life.” (John 4:14 NKJV)

That Fountain of Life is within you and is greater than your circumstances, greater than your depression, greater than your grief, greater than your debt, greater than any circumstances, greater than you yourself.

The Lord says to you, “Come, leave the rushing highways of your anxieties and rest in Me. Exchange the roar of the waves of life for the Still Small Voice, found only in the quietness of stilled waters. Come, dip you cup into the banks of the Living Waters of My refreshment and taste their sweetness.

“Let My peace flow through you as those Living Waters out of the Rock. Let My Spirit bubble up within you and work in you a new thing. Come, rest with Me, and I will restore your soul and pour out the blessings of My peace and joy.”

God has given us His restorative Living Waters, as the fountain of forgiveness, the reservoir of peace and joy. It is always there, just waiting for us to refill our spirit and soul!

“If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said,out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”John 7:37-38 NKJV

The river of God is full of water. Drink to your heart’s delight!
